Title: Can I use professors' letters from 5 years ago?
Post by: DS8 on March 17, 2010, 02:48:42 PM
I applied to law school straight out of undergrad five years ago and got some great recommendations from professors. I got in, but chose to wait a few years. I'll be applying this fall for 2011, but unfortunately I don't keep in touch with the professors anymore. I can get some great recs from my current employer (a top law firm) but I'm not sure that I'll be able to get any new ones from my old profs. Is it okay (good, okay, utterly horrible?) to use letters of rec that professors wrote in 2006?

Thanks so much for your help!
